The commitment of the Ottawa-Glandorf Schools, in partnership with our families and community, will provide superior educational opportunities for all children, to establish a foundation for a life of learning and personal success.

OGHS One to One Initiative

Over the past decade, advancements in technology have transformed classroom instruction. 21st Century Skills, including technology and digital literacy, are skills essential to our graduates as they enter an informational-based economy. Textbooks are now made in digital formats rather than the previous print format. Students are able to download, complete and submit assignment to their teacher without ever using a printer. Social media is used by school districts, administrators and teachers to communicate with community members and students. Ottawa-Glandorf Local School District is committed to providing our students the best education possible, preparing them for future success and making them competitive in the job market. 

In order to take education to the next level, the high school is implementing a 1-1 (one device per student) program for all students grades 9-12. All high school students and staff will have access to a school issued iPad for educational use while at school. This program will allow OGHS students to utilize their device in the classroom for instructional purposes, as well as to complete and submit assignments from home. Our implementation plan will begin in the 2015-16 school year.

The Annual Technology Protection Fund is $75.00 per student and must be paid before the iPad will be distributed.  You will also be able to pay remaining fees for the 2015-2016 school year (workbooks, course fees, etc.).  In addition to the iPad distribution, students will receive all the necessary paperwork (i.e. schedules, locker information, etc.).
